5 "Omne Trium Perfectum" Stars
DAMN that was GOOD!!
I loved every single word and moment of this read!!
This story is about criminal defense attorney, Stanton Shaw and his colleague/“friend with benefits,” Sofia Santos.
Ms. Chase says it best in setting up this tale:
“What happens when you mix a one-stop-light town, two professional arguers, a homecoming queen, four big brothers, some Jimmy Dean sausage, and a gun-Nana?
Yes, it’s all that hilarity and more!! At the core, this is a tale of love...
“Young love is strong. First love is powerful.”
It’s hard to fight nostalgia and some of your most memorable and gratifying firsts. Moments in your life that have shaped you and what you believe, want and what drives you. This book takes you on that journey and explores many facets of love’s bounty and how without our conscious knowledge, relationships can morph in and out of love and also into different kinds of love.
I’d like to interrupt this regularly scheduled review to thank Ms. Chase for the few Cameo appearances and references to Drew Evans... “is like no one I’ve ever known. It’s as if there’s a spotlight on him that never dims…”
There’s a connection between Drew and Stanton (which I won’t spoil) that also explains why Stanton has some of Drew’s traits (or really, any man’s traits). For instance, as much as I loved Stanton, there were moments where I seriously wanted to…
This tale could have gotten real ugly and gone down some predictable paths filled with rage, jealousy and angst but it didn’t. Thank you, Emma! And while there were laughs and levity, there was also a maturity about it even with how whacked the situation was. And yes, there were some sad and bittersweet moments but overall, a fun, sexy and sassy read.
I’d highly recommend this book. For those first time readers of Ms. Chase, this will give you a flavour for how witty, entertaining and gifted this writer is with her original stories, so hot, sexy and memorable heros and take-no-prisoner heroines. And to all you Drew Evan lovers out there, you MUST READ THIS BOOK!
Thank you, Emma. MUAH!
